A construction project that was to build a new practice gym for Ohio State's men's and women's basketball teams, expand the locker rooms and weight room and add a rehab and exercise pool is behind schedule and over budget.
Athletic director Gene Smith confirmed on Thursday that the project, which started in June and originally was to cost $13.7 million, had risen in price to $17 million and will end up with a $19-million price tag.
